I'm a collaboration enthusiast so of course I love wiki. In fact, wiki is what turned me into a collaboration enthusiast.
The following links serve as a kind of portal for me to my name pages on the wikis that I frequent:
I'm also part of the editorial team on a blog (ohh the irony) about all things wiki: http://recentchanges.info
Check out RecentChangesCamp! It's going to be a party :)
I've lurked on WikiWikiWeb for a while now. I got my feet wet editing the wiki by researching and editing the CeeLanguage TestingFramework entries. Right now, I've created a WalledGarden about elements of RelationalDatabases. I'm planning on tying the elements in to the rest of the topic soon ... after I've had a chance to make sure they aren't completely bogus.
I don't have an opinion on KenWilber's theory and I'm not too interested in forming one, except maybe through dialogue. At first glance, it's exceedingly dubious that he could have formed a viable theory. ChristopherAlexander, for example, has worked for many years on creating a theory of beauty, and failed. JohnRawls worked for a long time to make a theory of morality and he only half-succeeded. He's made notable errors, his book is hardly clear as an exposition of his theory, and he never put it on a solid mathematical basis. So it's difficult to judge it. Finally, the subject of the proper relationship of perception qua perception to physical reality is still wide open. I really doubt that one guy has solved all these problems, let alone unified them. -- RK
Hi Brandon do you have information on whether there are insights shared at WikiSym05 on "Social Mechanisms" for wiki? I am interested in Jimbos viewpoint, I got LarrySangers? already (link in LarrySangerAndLessonsInCollaboration which I started). Costin did point out rightly about what Larry felt was a "root cause" for problems. There are a few pages here (or start your own) where CommunityBuilding insights are much needed. -- DavidLiu Oct05
